KidsClick has the right concept but needs a lot of work. The major problem I noticed was that a lot of information in the sub-menus is actually for teens and says that in the link name, but the layout, language and icons of the homepage are so childish that a teen would not be caught dead using it, and the content is more mature than the audience it does attract. There is also a lack of relevant, new information. For example, under rock music kids will only find
- Bo Diddley — The Originator
- Music Notes : An Interactive Online Musical Experience
- Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum
- Stevie Wonder
- VH1: Artists
This list is not what I would expect and I don’t think kids would be happy with it.
IPL2 for Kids is a better organized, more informative and more relevant search for kids. I found a lot of great resources by browsing through it. I would bookmark this page in a children’s library area.
